Cosmic Photo prompt.

I know, I know, I’m late again, but this time I can plead extenuating circumstances; it’s K’lee’s turn to provide the prompt this week and he has yet to post anything, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say he forgot.

Nevertheless, I will gladly step into his prompting shoes for the week and give you a substitute theme to inspire you.

As I am currently sat in the glorious sunshine in the garden, I’ll make it easy and give you; Leaf and bud to play with for the remainder of the weekend.

Meet back here on Monday, ok?

*edit: K’lee has since posted a prompt, which you can find here if you’d like to have a choice of themes.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I trust your week has started off successfully.

I have a day off again today, because my boss was hassling me to book some holiday last week, (they get twitchy if you have too many hours left to take, in case you suddenly want to take time off when they’re busy) so I took advantage of the holiday lull after the Easter break and booked a couple of days.

None of which is especially relevant, except for the fact that it’s all about today’s prompt; Time.

I didn’t know what I’d do with this theme when I set it, it just seemed a nice broad concept to interpret with a picture and, as it happens, I am only presenting one photo for your consideration this week; my homage to the great Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory.

I’m rather pleased with it and you’ll have to take my word for it that it took longer than you’d think to get it just right.

K’lee will take the time to show you the fruits of his labours HERE.

But now you can show us what moments you captured for us.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Late again, but this time with an excuse; we have had a bit of an emergency this weekend and have water pouring (well, dripping fast) through our kitchen ceiling, and we waiting for the upstairs neighbours (yes, those idiots are STILL up there) to sort out a plumber. Hopefully, since their stopcock is, for some reason, in our airing cupboard and I have cut off their supply, that should give them an incentive to get their shit together and sort it out soon.

But meanwhile, let’s sort you out with your prompt for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week chosen by me; Time.

That’s it, just that.

You can interpret that in any way you like and meet back here on Monday to compare photographic notes.

See you then.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to an extremely colourful edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week curated by K’lee and based around his prompt; Cosmically created colour.

I had a flash of inspiration yesterday and took some photos of Audrey’s sand sculptures…

…along with some family portraits; then superimposed the latter over the former and carefully erased all the exposed skin, resulting in these brightly coloured and slightly surreal images.

You can find out what K’lee has to offer, HERE.

But now it’s time for you to add a splash of colour to our day.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

It’s still just about Friday and I’m getting in early with your weekly prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge for a change.

K’lee picked the theme this week and he went for the antithesis of my monochromatic prompt from last weekend and gave us; Cosmically created colour.

Do with that what you will and I’ll see you back here on Monday.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello everyone, I hope you’re enjoying a pleasant bank holiday Monday (if you get one, that is) or are at least having a successful start to the working week.

I set the theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week and I decided to go for the obvious topical prompt, with a monochromatic twist; Easter in black and white.

For today’s challenge, Audrey wanted to get involved, only fair when you realise it was her Easter gifts that are the stars of the post.

So here are a couple of shots from yesterday’s celebrations, with Audrey providing the peculiar facial poses (I think the second one is a rabbit impression, to match the chocolate truffle carrots she had for breakfast)…

…along with these two little clips (yes I know, they’re in colour, sorry) we made using the STIKBOT figures and app which Audrey got for Easter.

May I present The Chick Dance

…and One Man And His Zombie Dog.

I’m sure K’lee will have something wonderful for you HERE.

But now it’s time to see your Easter treats.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Oh, it’s Saturday! Blimey, where did the week go? I think working overtime when everyone else had finished for the the holiday has fried my internal calendar, I’d completely forgotten about the prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge on Monday.

But I got here eventually and your theme for this week is; Black and white Easter.

Hmmm, interesting, yes?

I don’t know, it just came to me in a monochromatic flash of inspiration, so I’m starting from scratch on this one, too.

It’s easy to join in, so I look forward to seeing what you have to show us on Monday.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello again, welcome to a new week, with all the light and shade it will bring, starting with today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, the prompt for which was chosen by K’lee; Notions of shadow and light.

I chose to seek inspiration in our flat and out in the garden, just to see if I could find suitable subjects in such a limited space.

From the garden I harvested these three images; the tangled white bones of a clematis, where the shadow and actual plant are almost indistinguishable against the shed…

…the snake-like shadow of an ornamental solar light…

…and the striped pattern formed by the sun shining through the tines of a rake.

Indoors, though, that was where I spotted my favourite bit of shadow play, which I christened “When the reflection escapes the mirror”.

The original looked so good that I updated it from a slightly more artistic angle, by which time the plant (a dahlia, which was lifted from the garden and has spent the winter inside in the warm, only sprouting new shoots the other day) had grown somewhat.

See for yourself.

*edit: I went out last night and caught these two extra shots on the way home.

See what shadowy shots K’lee brings to the party, HERE.

Now you can throw some shade our way.

Well, you didn’t expect to get two on-time prompts in a row, did you?

Anyway, since I’m here, I’ll give you your photographic mission for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week from the random theme generator of my transatlantic pal, K’lee; Notions of shadow and light.

Oh, very enigmatic, that gives you a whole spectrum of choices for your weekend capturing activities, so I’ll be expecting great things to start the week.

You know what to do…
